Iowa resident killed in Calaveras County collision

    According to CHP on June 5, 2021 around 7:15 AM  Dennis W. Conners (48) of Monrow, Georgia was

driving a 2021 Dodge Ram on Hwy 49 near O'Connell Lane in San Andreas.

   A woman (50) of Des Moines, Iowa was driving a gray Nissan headed in the opposite direction on Hwy 49.

   Conners apparently allowed his pickup to veer to the left and travel into the path of the Nissan, causing a head-on collision.

    The force, per CHP, pushed the Nissan back and onto the roadway shoulder and caused the Ram to overturn.

   Conners was transported to Mark Twain Medical Center with minor injuries. The woman (identification pending) was pronounced deceased at the scene.

   It is unknown if alcohol and or drugs were a factor in this collision.  It is still under investigation.
